Virtual PC 2.1.3 Features Floppy Fix -- Connectix has released a small update to Virtual PC that corrects a problem where PowerBook G3 users running version 2.1.2 were unable to access the floppy drive from the left expansion bay (see "Virtual PC 2.0: Not Just a Minor Upgrade" in TidBITS-433). If you haven't updated the program since version 2.0, be sure to go through the additional steps listed in the Read Me file or on Connectix's Web page before applying the 2.1.3 patch. The updater is a free 1.5 MB download. [JLC]
Sleep (and Lock) Your Screen
When you are walking away from your computer, it's fairly common practice to start your screen saver and lock your screen. But did you know that there is a built-in keyboard shortcut in Mac OS X to sleep the screen?
Press Control-Shift-Eject and your monitor sleeps without engaging the screen saver.
